Stockton Springs — The annual Open Mic Plus series runs the third Wednesday of the month through October at the Sandy Point Community Hall, 684 Route 1. The next is June 20, beginning at 7 p.m. with the Open Mic hour.

The open mic is open to all ages and levels of talent. Poets, storytellers, jokesters and musicians of any stripe — all are welcome. After a 15-minute break for refreshments, the feature performance hour begins about 8:15 p.m.

This month, Sandy Point welcomes singer/songwriter and poet Lara Herscovitch, who combines contemporary folk with blues, pop and jazz influences. Her songs are informed by her decades of humanitarian work in the United States, Latin America, Asia and Africa, in education, community development, environmental protection and justice system reform. Themes span misfits and underdogs, connection and courage, love and loss, hardship and hope, resilience and transformation.

Admission is a sliding scale donation of $3 to $10, free for children younger than 18. For more information, call 567-4044. The historic Sandy Point Community Hall overlooks the mouth of the Penobscot River, just 3.5 miles south of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge.
